Nicholas Jones, the current Benjamin T. Rome Dean of Whiting School at Johns Hopkins University, has been selected as vice president and provost at Penn State. Jones' appointment, effective July 1, is subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees at its May 3 meeting. As vice president and provost, Jones serves as PSU's chief academic officer, reports to the president of the university and acts as chief executive officer in the absence of the president.
Jones was selected for this position at Penn State after the university launched a nationwide search for a permanent leader, as the position was held interim since November 2011 by Robert Pangborn.
